I’m very happy to announce that I will be featuring Jamis Bikes as one of the featured brands at Ottawa Bike and Trail!  When I decided to open a bike store I was determined to work with bicycle brands that offer high-quality bicycles at a reasonable price.   I also wanted to work with smaller companies that share my values for getting people on bikes, being innovative, and providing excellent customer service.  I’ve also always been a fan of companies who aren’t afraid to buck the trends and do things differently.  I believe that Jamis meets all of these criteria and more.

Here’s a little history of Jamis in case you are unfamiliar with the brand.

Jamis Bikes : Our Story from Jamis Bikes on Vimeo.

Jamis has a broad product lineup with bikes to fit every need.  Their gravel and adventure bikes are perfect for the trails and gravel roads in our area.  All of their bike categories have innovative and well thought out designs that I can’t wait to try out.  And most importantly their prices are competitive with any of the other high-quality brands in the business.

But we’re at this not just to build better bikes. We’re in this to build better lives, to make YOU better. That’s pretty heavy. It’s a lot to carry on two wheels. But that’s how powerful a bicycle can be. And that’s why we’re so committed to building the best bikes possible. – Jamis Bikes

I can’t wait to start telling you more about Jamis as bikes start arriving in the store.  I’ll be carrying a good sampling of their line-up but I’ll also be able to order any of their products if I don’t have it on the floor.

This video, in particular, stuck with me as I was trying to decide which brands to offer.
